Brian Danzinger and Alderman Brian Johnson (City of Green Bay – District 9) shared their insight, experiences, and inspirations to the 2020 class of Leadership Green Bay as part of the annual “Government Day” experience. The day provided developing leaders the opportunity to meet with public servants, both past and present, and learn more about the government operations. This included an overview of the policy making process, the various municipal departments and resources, and the role of public officials in our communities.

Brian Danzinger – Leadership Green Bay Speaker

Brian Danzinger and Alderman Brian Johnson shared their personal stories of what inspired them to run for local office and what were some of the more challenging/rewarding moments. Specifically, both Danzinger and Johnson encouraged the 2020 class to become engaged in local governance and the value in engaging with area elected officials. While much attention is given to national politics, local level politics sometimes has a greater impact on our day to day lives. 2020 class members completed a brief self-survey to determine their “readiness” to run for local office. Even if some individuals were not prepared to make a run for office today, Danzinger and Johnson both hoped that class members would keep it in mind as a possible future endeavor.
Leadership Green Bay Program is a community-based, experiential learning leadership program and is here to help leaders grow and become more engaged in our community.
